Manchester United close to significant signing

Manchester United are reported to be close to concluding a significant signing, amid reports the Premier League champions are pursuing Cesc Fabregas and Marouane Fellaini.

Moyes is on the verge of completing a deal for one of his top targets, having yet to make a signing of note as Manchester United boss, and the transfer could be done in the coming days, according to Metro.

The flurry of reports surrounding Manchester United's transfer activity have been prompted by the decision of the club's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to leave the pre-season tour of Australia.

Woodward has flown back from the tour to push through a high-profile deal, with some suggestions that Fabregas is the player that is edging towards a move to Old Trafford.

Manchester United have already been credited with a €30 million bid for Fabregas, which was rejected by Barcelona, and may be ready to increase their opening offer in the hope of landing the Spain international.

Despite the interest of Manchester United, however, Fabregas has maintained that he wants to stay at the Camp Nou, as confirmed on Tuesday by Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova.

Barcelona would seemingly be reluctant to part company with the 26-year-old, having already sold one midfielder during the transfer window, with Thiago Alcantara joining Bayern Munich.

Should the efforts of Woodward to sign Fabregas be fruitless, Manchester United may then be encouraged to bid for Fellaini, with the club reported to have already been in contact with Everton in the past few days.
